HSMAdvisor allows users to create their own Speeds and Feeds tables for various Tool-material combinations.

Custom Speeds and Feeds tables (aka Custom SF Tables) are linked to the tool by using the combination of manufacturer's Brand Name, Series Name, and optionally Insert Name (aka. Manufacturer Names)

Whenever the tool's Manufacturer Names match one of the Custom SF Tables, HSMAdvisor tries to fetch the custom Speed and Feed information for the currently selected material. The Custom Speeds and Feeds panel will then display a green "M" icon.

If Custom SF Table contains a definition for a Material Group, all materials withing such Material Group will have the same custom Speeds and Feeds.
Is this case, the Icon will be Yellow/Green - A/M

Here is how the whole process looks like from the creation of the tool to the creation of the Custom SF Tables:
